2016 Community Build: One Home to Commemorate 30 Years


NeighborWorks Lincoln (NWL) is excited to announce a new initiative – the 2016 Community Build Project, which will commemorate the organization’s 30th Anniversary of making an impact in the City of Lincoln.

Through the Community Build Project, a new single-family home located at 2336 Q Street will be built and sold to one of NWL’s first-time homebuyer clients.  This project will be made possible through the support of a number of community sponsors, including the following: Bison Inc.; Ernie’s in Ceresco; Hampton Commercial Construction, Inc.; Kidwell, Inc.; Lennox Industries; Paul Sayer Drafting Design; and, Wells Fargo.

The public is invited to attend the celebratory groundbreaking event for the home which is scheduled for September 8, 2016, at 11:00am at the corner of 24th and Q Streets (across the street from the Community Build home site).   Work is expected to be completed in the summer of 2017.  We believe this collaborative project is a fitting tribute to NWL’s 30-year history of making a significant impact in the City of Lincoln.

“The Community Build project will enable the construction of a new single-family home for one of our clients in one of Lincoln’s most established neighborhoods, through a community-wide collaboration,” according to Mike Renken, CEO at NeighborWorks Lincoln. “NeighborWorks Lincoln thanks all participants in this project for their support in helping commemorate this milestone in our organization’s history.”

NeighborWorks Lincoln would like to say a special thank you to Kidwell, Inc., who has been instrumental in the development of this initiative.
